The second weekend of November can only mean one thing. Festivities and lots of holiday cheer are just around the corner. I'm not sure I'm ready for all of it but it's coming. So to help get in the spirit, I've got a line-up of fun holiday libations to share over the coming weeks but first, this pear and honey cocktail. Several months ago, I pinned something similar which inspired my own version. Some wild honey flavored vodka was all I needed to make this finally happen and wow, am I glad it happened.
Cheers to the weekend!
